DC Design is scheduled to unveil India’s first supercar at the upcoming 2012 Delhi Auto Expo that’s just around the corner. This is the same firm that was responsible for the Rolls-Royce inspired Phantom DC Concept coupe back in 2006.

The supercar will be a limited edition, low volume vehicle assembled at DC Design’s facility in Pune, India. They anticipate deliveries of the vehicle to begin by the end of 2013.

Details are bleak, but what we do know is that it will probably be powered by a V6 engine sourced from Honda with a custom turbo setup to give it over 400-hp. The power-to-weight ratio will be the focus for this supercar, as DC Design is aiming to have it weigh less than 3,400-lbs.

Right now DC Design is aiming to have 300 vehicles built and if there is enough demand they’ll produce up to 3,000 vehicles a year. Despite being a “supercar” DC Design hopes to price it around $55,000.

We’re sure more details will be revealed once the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo starts on January 5th, 2012.
